peace garden inscriptionHeadteacher, Mr Graham Shore, was surprised when judges arrived at the school as he was unaware they had been nominated.

The Peace Garden was redesigned in 2015 and is modelled on a ruined church. It provides children with a quiet area away from the playground.

Mr Shore believes their success was as much to do with the students as it was with the actual garden. Judges spoke to several children and heard what the school Peace Garden meant to them.

One student told Calne News: "I like sitting in the Peace Garden because it is quiet and a nice place to visit when the playground is a bit too loud"
